Zara Noor Abbas is a Pakistani actress who walked at the FPWSS 2018 for designer FnkAsia and her walk being a little unique,was immediately subjected to mockery by a few famous Pakistani models.
The actress then took to Instagram after finding a video of a few Pakistani models mocking her walk and added a long and powerful statement along with it
Hey Dear Stunning Models!! You girls look amazing in this video and thank you for making me learn a few things about the world. Now i cant complain why women in the world have to fight so much for gender equality. That is because women don't build women. They bash at eachother like this. It's so sad. So so sad for all the people who are trying to empower women. They don't know that it is the women who dont let eachother grow. I am an Actor, not a model. I cant even imagine to be a model. It is so effortlessly amazing and tiring at the same time. But as an entertainer, it is my job to entertain my audiences. And thats what i did with my walk which was based on the theme of a warrior princess thus the belt and the boots were incorporated in my outfit. That is why designers choose actors as showstoppers for their walks. To add more drama. Some liked it, some didn't. My designer was happy and so was i. But anyway, all the best for tonight. Run the world, Girls!!
The post obviously drew a lot of attention and support from many celebrities, including Ayesha Omar who said: “your statement couldn’t have been better worded. I saw something in some article and came to your Instagram account to read the whole thing. You hit the nail on the spot. You’re an entertainer, an actor, but most importantly, you aren’t afraid to let down your inhibitions and step out of your comfort zone. That takes a lot. So proud of you.”
However, one of the models, Areeba Habiib, who was a part of the video mocking Zara, which went viral has taken the step and apologized.
She apologized directly to Zara and took full responsibility for uploading the video of girls ‘having their own fun in their own time and space’ and admitted that it should not have been done ‘at someone’s expense, especially publically’.
